Green Pod Soup

Posted by Rick | January 12th, 2007 | Filed under Environmental Change, Positive Change, Sustainability


I’m sure some of you have been hip to podcasts for a while, but in case you’ve only been using your mp3 player for music (as I had before my last plane trip) here are a few earth-friendly programs you can download for free and listen to anytime you want:

Grist Environmental News: Weekly highlights from Grist.com’s irreverent point of view.
Living on Earth: An award-winning environmental news program broadcasted on 300 public radio stations.
NPR’s Science Friday: “Making science radioactiveâ€? ” It’s NPR… need we say more?
America the Green: A smart weekly program that hits home by covering topics from organic wine to cell phone hazards.
Earthwatch Radio: A weekly show produced by the staff and students of Sea Grant Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The Lazy Environmentalist: Nothing wrong with being a little lazy… like listening to podcasts instead of reading, for instance.

And these are just the ones that I test drove. There are tons of others out there, many of which are available directly from iTunes.

    I’m sad to see that EcoTalk was left out of your list.

    Great post on podcasts, Rick!

    But you missed one (at least): Good Dirt Radio reports inspiring stories about people helping to solve environmental challenges affecting life on Earth. They share positive environmental ideas and actions that individuals, businesses, institutions or communities can embrace.

    Good Dirt Radio podcasts are available on iTunes, or you can subscribe directly from their site (GoodDirtRadio.org).

    I’m sure I missed a lot more than one or two! Thanks again. That’s what this blog’s all about… Keep the recommendations coming.

    Looks like I may have to update the post in a few days.

    Really like the site. I have added a link to my blog at http://timkevan.blogspot.com where I write a bit about surfing in the UK. If you’d like to add a link back that would be much appreciated. If not, no worries at all. Best wishes, Tim Kevan
